Episode Summary

EDIT

The Ranger teens are involved with a stage play of Rumpelstiltskin at Angel Grove High. Kim's grandmother's antique spinning wheel is used as a prop, which leaves it in a position to be captured by Rita's goons, who turn it into the evil Wheel Of Destruction. Can the Rangers put a stop to the giant wheel without ruining Kim's family heirloom?

  • Rita's latest weapon is a giant wheel.

    It was a bit funny that Bulk and Skull were in the play and that they were practicing their lines. A bit sad that Kim's grandma spinning wheel was broken by Bulk. Rita used Kim's spinning wheel as a weapon. The Rangers had to deal with Goldar and Scorpina first. This episode had good zords action and a fight between the spinning wheel and the Magazord and the Dragonzord between Goldar and Scorpina. Kim got her grandma's spinning wheel back in the end.moreless

    • Bulk: Give us a smooch, fair babe?
      Kimberly: Yes, of course.
      (Bulk puckers up close to her, until...)
      Kimberly: But first, ya have to spin all the straw into gold!
      (she nudges Bulk)
      Bulk: Get ready ta' pucker up, fair dame.
      (he gathers the straw, until his pants rip, and everyone laughs)
      Skull: That's it, Bulk! Way to bear your soul to your audience!
      (Bulk furiously grabs his partner)
      Bulk: Come on, chum, and let's get outta here!
      (the audience laughs some more as Bulk and Skull exit stage right)
      Kimberly: The end.
      (the audience applauds)

    • Bulk: (as Rumpelstiltskin in the play) Never fear, fair babe. I said I'd be here, and here I am.
      Kimberly: Took ya long enough.

    • Kimberly: (as the fair maiden in the play) Now there are 3 piles of straw to spin into gold. Oh, woe is me. Where's Rumpelstiltskin?
      (no answer)
      Kimberly: Oh, where's Rumpelstiltskin?
      (still no answer, much to Kimberly's dismay)
      Kimberly: Rumpelstiltskin! Did ya hear me?!
      (the audience laughs, and the rest of the teens push Bulk into the stage)
      Trini: Hurry up! Get out there.
      Bulk: I'm goin'! I'm goin'! Take a chill pill, will ya?!

    • Mr. Kaplan: Where's your costume, Bulk?
      Bulk: Hey. Just addin' a little touch of the 90s, Mr. Kaplan.
      Mr. Kaplan: (checks his watch) Get on with it, Bulk, if you don't mind.

    • Tommy: Have you guys seen the spinning wheel? It's not in the classroom.
      Bulk: Oh, yeah. See, I was broke, so Skull here decided to spin me some money, so I could buy a soda.
      (he and Skull guffaw, much to Tommy's dismay)
      Tommy: Hey! I'm not kiddin' around, Bulk. I mean it. Did you see it?
      Bulk: No! I didn't see it. Ya goody-good. What would I want with the stupid spinning wheel, anyway?

    • Kimberly: Bulk, be careful! You're such a clod.
      Bulk: She's makin' me mess up my lines!
      (he spins the spinning wheel very fast)
      Kimberly: Bulk? Not so fast!
      (the fast-spinning wheel blows Mr. Kaplan's toupee off, making Bulk guffaw at it!)
      (the wheel suddenly breaks)
      Kimberly: HEY!!!
      (she looks at the busted wheel)
      Kimberly: Oh, no! You ruined my grandmother's spinning wheel!!! What is she gonna say?!
      Mr. Kaplan: Honestly, Bulk. Come on, kids. Let's take a break before somethin' else gets broken.
      Bulk: But it's so bent outta shape, Kimberly!
      Kimberly: This happens to be very important to me.
      (she sets off in a huff)

    • Tommy: Man! Why'd I put my Communicator in the bag!?

    • Tommy: Zordon, what's goin' on?
      Zordon: A battle rages on the other side of the park, but more power is needed. I have told Jason to bring all the Zords together to form Ultrazord. If this fails, the world is doomed.
      Tommy: I'm on my way.

    • Tommy: You clay-brains are unbelievable!
